Piccadilly Circus is where both locals and tourists go in London to meet up thanks to its privileged location and endless possibilities for entertainment in the Westminster area. Piccadilly Circus is well-known for its bright lights and the Eros Fountain which is located right in the centre and which has become one of the iconic sites of London. The square was built in 1819 in order to connect Regent Street with Piccadilly, the main shopping street at the time. Nowadays Piccadilly Circus also houses the London Pavilion and the Criterion Theatre.
